A lively, fist pumping dose of hardcore is exactly what the swamp of Leeds needed to kick-start a the second day’s proceedings and Architects provide the perfect wake up call.

The Brighton boys blast through their half hour noon slot with vigour and the expanding number of early risers do their best to show the same passion but with a full day ahead and muddy wellies below, it’s with great effort.

A short sharp hits set is sacrificed to showcase numbers from their latest ‘The Here And Now‘ album but it’s left to Hollow Crown‘s ‘Follow The Water‘ and ‘Early Grave‘ to wrap up an outing which gains an extra star for effort this morning.
